Pope Compares Gays to Destruction of the Rainforest


Both will apparently destroy humankind.

Reuters reports:

"Pope Benedict said on Monday that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour was just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction. '(The Church) should also protect man from the destruction of himself. A sort of ecology of man is needed,' the pontiff said in a holiday address to the Curia, the Vatican's central administration. 'The tropical forests do deserve our protection. But man, as a creature, does not deserve any less.'....The pope said humanity needed to 'listen to the language of creation' to understand the intended roles of man and woman. He compared behaviour beyond traditional heterosexual relations as 'a destruction of God's work'. He also defended the Church's right to 'speak of human nature as man and woman, and ask that this order of creation be respected'."

  1. It means soooo much to me to be lectured by a flaming queen like him that stood by as tens of thousands of children were raped and molested. May God have mercy on his disgusting soul.

  4. What the hell is he smoking?? What kind of logic is that? It's like we have a communicable disease and being gay is catching...we wish..I have a whole list to turn...Who the hell writes this crap for him?

  5. The perfect harmonious Christmas Present. At a time when Christian Religions preach Peace on Earth and good will to ALL men, this former Nazi Ratzinger perpetuates an evil that hides a multitude of Internal sins within the Church...

    Anyway.... Happy Christmas.. he would have been better off encouraging people to use artificial trees! At least that might have some effect on a global issue that might actually destroy us.

  6. Queen, please. Take off your dress and your bejeweled hat and then come talk to me about the sin of homosexuality.

  7. Born & living in a predominantly Catholic country (a non-American here) I am very disappointed in how Benedict handles this scenario, a complete contrast on the build bridging activities that his predecessor did (John Paul II). Honestly, when he became the new head of the Roman Catholic church, we(yes I am still an active church-goer) have become more of a joke instead of the uplifting group that his predecessor worked very hard to build - not really surprising since he is part of the Opus Dei - the strictest form of Roman Catholicism that there is. Sad

  8. first, speaking of ecology, we're about a billion over earth's carrying capacity of us-a situation supported only by mostly petroleum-based fertilizers. So, put on a condom or take the pill or get fixed (or be gay). The rest of us need to follow China's one child rule (but volunarily. second, it sounds like the next phrase out of his mouth is going to be, " let's kill all the jews."

  10. I made a Facebook Group about the Pope. Please join! We need to send a message to the Catholic Church. They can't promote discrimination like this. It's so bad for humanity!

  11. As a former Nazi, he is speaking from experience apparently.

    Someone should tell him that ermine is very 19th century. Where is PETA when you really need them? What next - jeweled slippers?

  12. HOW can any thinking person buy this fucking catholic scam? In the 21st century? Look at them for fuck's sake! In their silly dresses and prada shoes..childfuckers.

  13. This us scary because a lot of people, especially outside of Northern Europe and North America, pay attention to what he says. The Vatican was in bed with the Nazis-they have been on the wrong side of history for a long time now. If, as there is reason to fear , we are heading into the 1930's, version 2.0, let us pray that we don't repeat that era's explosion of demagoguery, hate, and fascism - LGBT are the most vulnerable group to ideological attack globally. SILENCE=DEATH

  14. Okay this disgusting.

    I believe that official teaching is that homosexuality is not a sin, but rather the activities. And just a statement from the Pope will not change official Church teaching. However it is absolutely disgusting that he said that.

    I grew up Catholic, now I'm a theist, and know they are facing problems with membership, especially of young people, and this will not help in any way.

  15. I thought Benedict XVI and his personal secretary, Georg Gaenswein, were lovers.

  16. the old fart is absolutely disgusting. he is personally responsible, more-so than anyone else on earth, for the 'destruction of Gods work'. may his god have mercy on his black soul.

  17. You know, in a way, he's saying that he thinks being gay (and gay sex, presumably) is really awesome -- so awesome that straight people will start spontaneously turning gay if they aren't kept in a state of fear through the constant condemnation and persecution of homosexuality.

    Now, I know for certain that being gay is awesome -- for me -- but I also know there's no pussy so great it's gonna turn me straight. So I don't understand the portrayal of gayness as some kind of temptation that will draw people away from straightness. If there's more acceptance, gay people will stop pretending to be straight, but straight folks are gonna stay straight. (Even if they do accept the occasional blow job from a dude :-)

  18. There certainly is a case for the church to lose its tax exemption status! There are so many thoughtful posts on this I could hardly add any additional notes except to say these fruitcakes are taking the earth down a path to Armageddon; and this trip is intentionally designed to fulfill their own perceived "divine" prophecy. Hate, Hate, Hate is all they teach; Fear, Fear, Fear is the power they possess. Nothing has changed in 2000 years except that today they can't torture those that disagree with their mythology as they once did.

  20. He learned his lessons well - growing up in Nazi Germany. Certainly his comments will be interpreted by some as gays represent the destruction of the human race. The same mentality that got us mass murder of gay kids by ultraorthodox in Israel. BTW, I was Jewish. I'm joining the Universalist Unitarian church, and for my wife, when she goes to temple, we'll call it widows night.

    You would think he would realize that his own ideas about minorities, utilizing the hatred of Jesus own people the Jews given to the world by Rome, would have penetrated his mind.

    But nothing gets through when you are frozen into a time warp of things written 3000 years ago in an age of superstition and ignorance.

    Yes,there are many good Catholics, and Catholic churches. But how in the world do we engender a split. Where the good churches, and tens of thousands of Good priests tell Rome to go to hell, and come back to the meaning of Jesus life as a message of God's love for all his creation.

    But for Razi - two words - Sieg Heil.
    Will they ever learn, or are the privileges and power of being able to corrupt other peoples minds the ultimate sin to which they will never confess. Until the bank account runs dry.

    Because unfortunately the church does not have any mechanism to abort his Papacy and send him to a nursing home for the deranged.

    And I thought the church opposed cloning. Seems like they are run by a clone.
